    This study aimed at investigating the motivational factors of English language teachers at primary and elementary level in rural and urban areas of Pakistan. To achieve the goal of the study, the researchers used a language teachers’ questionnaire. A sample of one hundred and five English language teachers that teach in primary, elementary and secondary schools from government and private sector in District Pakpattan (Punjab, Pakistan) population had been purposefully selected to get responses to the questionnaire. Data obtained revealed that the school heads, the English language teachers’ colleagues and their students do not motivate the English language teachers in the public schools. The study also explored that the teachers of English language are motivated because they like their jobs, social status, respect, self-esteem, self-confidence and teaching will help them in their future. Now a days teaching as an English language teacher also gives them security (financially and morally) for their families and it is prestigious to be an English language teacher because now English has become an internationally social language.
